Must We Always Move In Hope?

Resting In Hope

Resting In Hope

 

Must we always be moving towards our Hopes for them to be fulfilled? I think not. There are times in our journey towards whatever it we may be Hoping for that we just need to sit and rest.

Make sure you pick a good resting point, imagine one like sitting under the above tree. A place that will give you calm, relaxing, even rejuvenating feelings, surrounded by beauty. A place of rest like this allows us to renew our strength for the journey that is often uphill and at times treacherous.

If you are hoping for something and you feel out of energy, take a moment to rest. Then, before you know it, Hope will lift you off your feet as you soar towards the fulfillment of it!

Under The Tempest

Beyond Blue is an Australian organisation dedicated to providing services and raising awareness surrounding depression and anxiety. This week, they launched a new campaign targeting passive racism against Indigenous Australians. The television ad, titled “The Invisible Discriminator”, depicts a number of Indigenous people encountering racism in everyday situations, wherein the offending person may not seem to realise that their actions are racially motivated and they certainly don’t realise the effects that their actions have.

The ad in itself is incredibly powerful, and lends a perspective towards racism that people often overlook or do not consider. For me personally, it wasn’t so much the fact that these people were being discriminated against because of their race. What struck a chord with me was that these people were being singled out or rejected or treated differently because of something they have no control over.

I have a real issue with people being…

The Beauty Of Having Hope

20140725_160709-1_resized_1

There is no beauty in life more than the beauty of having hope.

I recently captured this photo in my back yard. The beautiful butterfly had landed on the ugly patch of concrete and shell mixture. Until that moment, I had thought that patch had no redeeming value and I couldn’t wait to remove it. When he landed there, it reminded me of times in our lives when we hold onto hope even in the ugliest situations. Then, I got a glimpse of how Hope must appear in the unseen realm, a beautiful reminder of better times ahead. Often we struggle to hang on during the difficult times we experience in our lives. When you encounter one of those times remember, there is beauty just ahead ready to land right in the middle of the ugly. Hope and Blessings to you!! 🙂

The Power Of Possibility

“It’s the possibility that keeps me going, not the guarantee.”
― Nicholas Sparks

The word possible refers to that which may come about or take place. If you can focus on the fact that something is possible, without a guarantee it will happen, you will set yourself free. There are very few guarantees in life, except for the reality that our mortal bodies will cease to exist at some point, while we are still alive we will HAVE to use the restroom and sooner or later we will HAVE to sleep. Because life has few guarantees, doesn’t it make sense to focus on what is possible? Believing in possibilities allows us to envision a future full of promise and provides strength in today to get us there one step at a time. Do you believe in possibilities?

Hope Is An Echo

Hope is an echo,/hope ties itself/yonder,/yonder ~ Carl Sandburg

What do you see when you look into the future? If you’re not sure or you would like to improve it, send out an echo of hope.  An echo is the repetition of a sound. I like how Carl Sandburg says “hope is an echo” as hope ties itself together, calling yonder, yonder. You can have a future full of hope as you send the sound of hope ahead of you. Hope has a way of pulling you onward and all the while repeating itself anew every morning. So speak of hope and let it echo ahead of you!

Hope and Blessings to you! 🙂

A Force Of Nature

“Hope is a force of nature. Don’t let anyone tell you different.”
― Jim Butcher

According to Wikipedia, a force of nature is a natural phenomenon that humans cannot control. Hope is a force, not a feeling. I believe hope is a force of nature. I also believe we all have it at our core. Hope is our foundation, built by this force of nature. It is not something we can control, in that, it is there regardless of what we do. The action we must take is choosing to harness its power, allowing it to propel us forward.  Will you choose it?
